Tatty Ted

It has poured down most of today, managed to get out to buy stamps and post some cards between the downpours but that's about all! My wee man (aka 21 yr old son) left this evening to go on a road trip up to the north of Scotland with one of his friends - Loch Ness will need a new attraction after he's visited as he's enough to scare any monster away lol. Do hope the weather improves for them else they could be mighty soggy within a few days.
It's been ages since I made a frilly frooey card so I set to this evening  and this is the result:

I bought this Tatty Ted a wee while ago and this is the first time he's been inked, I've stamped him onto a Marianne Design die cut which I bought last week in Louth and inked around the edges with the blue ink used for his nose. Backing papers are also Tatty Ted and the blue strip is a Martha Stewart punch. Card is finished with lace, bows, buttons, ribbon rose buds and roses.
